, but the fact he was not speaking optimistically about the economy and the effects of qe3 on the economy sent a damper on the stocks. a nice way to begin the day with 75 up on the dow, 3.6 on the s&p, and, again, nasdaq is the only one in the red. lauren: sometimes the fed tie doesn't list everything. silver ending at seven month highs. look at that. david: oil, a little of a rise, natural gas, though, we want to focus on natural gas because we have seen that thing grow for the past month or so. it was up 5% today. if you're looking for some play in energy, oil seems a little too hectic for you, go to natural gas. with ce get -- can we get that up there? okay. switch to airlines. lauren: they are seeing a pop today. as you see, there was a report out earlier saying the outlook for the airline industry is improving. that's a good sign. look at that. up arrows across the board. david: ibm, you knew it was a pick when warren buffet went in there. today, look at this, an all time 10-year high at the top there trading at $210.43 per share. that was a 1.5% jump today. a nice big move by ibm. fed ch
's a point you made earlier in an earlier segment that the bottom line is the economy is still very, very weak. i'll tell you, we've been on overweight equities for the last six or nine months. we're now starting to pull back some of the risk. yes, the market could rally higher. i don't see the stimulus up as much as i did when everybody didn't believe qe-3 was coming. i think there's more negative potential headlines. we're taking risk off the table right now and hopefully we'll re-enter at a lower position. >> it's interesting. rickntelli, the fiscal cliff keeps coming up. that's one of the biggest issues in terms of keeping businesses from making any real decisions here, putting money to work, and it's also the highlight going into the election. >> it is. i guess the real irony is even if the fiscal cliff didn't exist, the outlook economically, both domestically and globally, is deteriorating. really, it's a bit of a double whammy. i'll go back to what i said the last time we discussed this an hour ago. if you look at the 21 weeks from mid-october to march of 2000 when the nasdaq crash
zero economy. the past ten years, zero jobs growth, zero wage growth, zero stock returns. which part of that equation is the most crippling? >> i think all of them. if you think about the middle class, where they need jobs, they need wage growth. we've seen average meaning household income actually go nowhere and importantly in their 401(k)s have become 201 ks, they need robust stock returns. if we're going to get wage growth and jobs growth clearly we have to do, as the guest said, we have to restore the manufacturing base. one good news i have in this triple zero economy, i think going forward the next decade for stock returns will be a lot better than the last decade. the reason is simple and somewhat troubling. first of all, if you think about the stock market here in america, it's physically located here but increasingly, its returns are located elsewhere. >> sorry to interrupt you. the very thing that's been a trend many would say hurtful for american workers is the thing that can help american investors because these are companies that don't necessarily need american workers.
's not forget we also had a dismal report on durable goods orders, once again showing weakness in this economy. investors not worried about these numbers today. >> we got decent news out of europe and china this morning. either way, we're asking if investors should think twice before buying into this kind of a rally based on what the u.s. economy is telling us right now. let's talk about it in today's "closing bell" exchange. we have larry blazer from mayflower advisers and our own rick santelli and mandy drury. larry glazer, you happen to believe that economically there's an iceberg dead ahead. this market doesn't act like it today. >> no, it doesn't. you can see today investors are so focused on the global stimlouse story that they're missing the big picture. the big picture is the fact that the economic data, particularly global manufacturing data, is absolutely rolling over. look at chinese manufacturing, down 11 months in a row. you hit the nail on the head. gdp, durable goods, all a sign of weakness. the problem is the catalysts are behind us and the icebergs are ahead. you've got the fi

are concerned that a tax increase of that size could shock the economy and trigger a recession by reducing the cash that taxpayers have to spend. but scott, congress and the president now have a firm price tag on what it costs if they don't reach a budget deal after the election. >> pelley: wyatt, thank you, the u.s. economy is also being hurt by what's happening far beyond washington, all the way across the atlantic. senior business correspondent anthony mason has more on that. >> reporter: in spain this weekend, police clashed with protesters angry over austerity measures the government's been forced to implement. a quarter of the work force in spain can't find jobs and the unemployment rate in the 17-nation euro zone has now hit a record high-- 11.4%. for three straight quarters, the european economy has been shrinking and federal reserve chairman ben bernanke said today america is feeling the impact. >> it has been a problem for the u.s. economy. we have seen head winds coming from slowing trade. >> reporter: if you combine imports and exports, the european union is our biggest trading
the economy likely added 155,000 private payroll jobs this month. we'll bring you the number and get you instant reaction from joel prakken. in corporate news, richard schultz is pressing forward with a possible $11 billion buyout of the retailer. schultz and at least four private equity firms have reportedly started examining the books of the economy. at the same time, he is said to be negotiating individually with the pe firms on the details of how his roughly 20% stake in the company would contribute and what role he might be playing after a buyout. and oracle ceo larry ellison says the company won't be making any major acquisitions during the next couple years. in an interview on "closing bell" yesterday, ellison said he is instead focused on growing organically. he also discussed the dividend. >> that's the decision of the oracle board of directors. i believe we'll gradually increase the dividend as opposed to dublg it or tripling it all at once. nothing dramatic. >> shares of oracle during the last year, take a look at it. 31.65. he's gotten close to the top there, joe. >> all righ
will not be looking to score a knockout tonight but will instead zero in on the president's handling of the economy. you can say that the romney game plan for tonight can be boiled down into two key phrases. do no harm and live to fight another day. just a few hours before one of the most important nights of his political life, mitt romney walked through the debate site in denver prepped for his first one-on-one face-off with the president. campaign officials tell cnn romney's game plan tonight is to provide a clear choice, talk about his plan to create jobs and contrast that with the president's performance on the economy. and in a sign of caution, the campaign says romney won't be looking for a knockout punch. one of romney's top surrogates, florida senator marco rubio says that's the right approach. does mitt romney need to score a knockout punch? >> this is not an athletic competition. this is a debate between two money, one that is president and wants to stay there and one that wants to offer a new direction. >> reporter: all day long the romney campaign has signalled it will go after what it
at the dynamics economically at play in ohio. governor cakasic's great job of sheparding the ohio economy to account for state unemployment 7.2%, lower than the national average, it also undercuts mitt romney's message this economy isn't in turn around and time to get someone else. >> makes john kasic a hobbled sur row gate for mitt romney, you can't say the economy is great when you're trying to prove the economy is bad. thing about ohio it's an important state, and remember when 2004 the whole election came down to john kerry losing narrowly to george w. bush in that state, the president has a couple huge advantages we're seeing in the ten-point game, one is the auto bailout. there is no state besides michigan be impacted more positively by the auto bailout than ohio. 82 out of 88 counties have an auto parts supplier in them that's felt a direct effect of the bailout. part of why the economy is doing better there. it's enough to move the needle. also the case that anti-union backlash in the industrial midwest and wisconsin has motivated organized labor in ohio in a way, the case always
's driving voters. >> i think the economy is better today than it was three years ago. >> pelley: reports from our campaign 2012 team. after one of the worst calls in football history, there is movement today on getting real officials back on the field. jeff glor is covering. and michelle miller on a bittersweet homecoming for the indiana national guard, happy to be back from afghanistan, but mourning the men that they lost. >> i would gladly give my life to bring all four of them back. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. 41 days before the election, president obama is opening leads in states that mitt romney can least afford to lose. have a look at our new poll today. the president now has a 10-point lead in the swing state of ohio, 53% to 43. in florida, another key swing state, mr. obama's lead is nine points, 53% to 44. and the president leads by 12 point in pennsylvania, 54 to 42. this quinnipiac university/cbs news/"new york times" polls has a margin of roar of three points so the leads are significant. our cbs news

will help the economy? his plan is to continue what he has done before. the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford them a more years of brought the bomb. >> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in their first presidential debate. watch and engage with c-span. post debate, your reaction, calls, e-mails, and tweets. >> not a debate between former wisconsin governor tommy thompson and u.s. rep tammy baldwin. this debate is hosted by the wisconsin broadcasters association. the cook political report raised his race a tossup. this is one hour. >> good evening. radio and television broadcasters are pleased to continue our public affairs broadcasts tradition began in 1990 sponsoring debates in major political campaigns. the debate will be broadcast over 80 wisconsin television stations. this evening's debate will engage the two leading candidates in their first face- to-face debate. former wisconsin governor tommy thompson and second district congresswoman tammy baldwin. this debate is made possible by generous grants from wisconsin aarprsities and wisconsin. >> good evening, ever
. think back to when barack first took off. -- office. right after he was inaugurated. our economy was on the brink of clams. newspapers were using words like meltdown, calamity. create implodes, economy in crisis. for years folks had been lured into buying homes they couldn't afford so their mortgages were under water, banks weren't lending, companies weren't hiring, the auto industry was in crisis. this economy was losing 800,000 jobs every month. 800,000 jobs every month. and a lot of folks whether we were headed for a great depression. see, now that's what barack faced on day one as president of the quiet. but instead of pointing fingers and placing blame, your president got to work. [applause] he was thinking about us. about folks like my dad and like his grandmother and that's why he cracked down on lending adduce -- abuses so today when folks apply for a mortgage or credit card you know exactly what you're getting in to. that's why he cut taxing for families and small businesses. balls we believe that teachers and firefighters should not be paying higher tax rates than milli
the issues, to talk about how we continue to build this economy and strengthen it going forward over the course of the next four years. >> and in terms of the defense that he has to play, the romney team are attacking him for not creating a budget, in three years, of course the argument the counter argument would be the republicans for three out of the four years were in charge and -- at least one house, and were blocking him in the senate. but they will come at him on the economy. what is the response going to be? >> well look, i think the president -- the response obviously is two fold. let's talk about where we've come from, losing 800,000 jobs a month to 30 plus months of positive private sector job growth, added 5 million jobs, you know, since we hit the bottom and -- but i think what's most important and voters want to hear is what you going to do as president going forward and i think the president will be anxious to talk about bringing manufacturing jobs back from overseas and putting americans back to work, improving our educational system, recruiting and training math and s
today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycheck. more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. i'm mitt romney, and i approved this message. >> i think that ad just makes my point, they're tone deaf. good morning, it's thursday, september 27th, as you take a look at a wet times square in new york city. i'm in chicago this morning, but with us in new york city with willie geist, our national affairs editor for "new york" magazine and msnbc political analyst, john heilemann. also former treasury official and "morning joe" economic analyst steve ratner and nbc news chief affairs correspondent and host of "andrea mitchell reports." >> we have affairs. >> andrea mitchell. and in washington, for "the politico playbook," executive executor jim vandehei.
segment. three focus on the economy, four, five, and six health care, the role of government and governing. procedure, each candidate gets two minutes to respond to a question posed by jim lara. time remaining is given to freewheeling discussion of segments. risk factor, dangerous, sometimes lethal. ♪ [music] ♪ >> are you better off than you were four years ago? is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? is there more or less unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? is america as respected throughout the world as it was? do you feel that our security is as safe, that we're as strong as we were four years ago? if you answer all of those questions yes, why then i think your choice is obvious as to who you'll vote for. if you don't agree, if you don't think that this course that we've been on for the last four years is what you would like to see us follow for the next four, then i could suggest another choice that you have. >> jimmy jimmy carter practical gagging. question, who will win the debate on tuesday? can romney pull a rea
's focus is domestic. >> yep. >> no bigger domestic issue than the economy, as we know. we'll have a rather open format. do you think we'll actually hear a specific from mr. romney on how he plans for a revenue-neutral 20% tax cut across the board for every american? are we going to hear that tonight in. >> no, absolutely not. i think what you're going to hear and see is more of a tactic. sort of a communications tactic of making it sound like he's talking like a plan, like that 17,000 cap he threw out the other day and then his team walked that right back. probably -- >> karen, that's known as i've got a hole in my pocket, dear liza. >> that's right. you'll hear him talk about a number of these things as if it sounds like a plan, but without any specifics. i think what you'll see from the president is more specifics. again, the president actually has a record to talk about. i mean, put forward a health care plan. happened to be, you know, based on mitt's, but whatever. he has a jobs plan, a number of things of specifics he can point to whereas romney doesn't. i think that will be part of t
of return. do something to get the economy to move again. i think there's a lot of compelling unions that are think abouting it circhtly. to underestimate the kind of [inaudible] >> i would say one thing to watch political any in the jersey we come from a unionized state than a lot of states in the south. the union have different power and i think one of the things that is important to watch you saw it in wisconsin and you see in other places it's a growing system between public sector and union work force which is growing and the trade and the private sector. they are different views on politics and very different views on public policy coming from both sides. i think we're at an early stage on that. i think it is something to watch as we go forward in terms of the political objectives of public sector and private sector which ultimately different subjective you will see a bit of divergence in that. >> people love to talk about it. the division between public and private sector unions. there a certain number of tenet whether you're public or private. [inaudible] what you pay for the
. that's what's happening now, coming to grips with their economy is going to be horrendous for a long time. >> thank you very much. i'm sure we'll check back with you later this morning. >>> we have to go? really? we do? all right. coming up, this football stuff. >> we'll get into some of this. >> today's national weather forecast. in sports, another team clinches a major league baseball playoff spot. but pointless, really. going to lose to the reds one way or another. >>> both president obama and mitt romney will be in ohio today. the story behind that swing state. >>> welcome back. take a look and you'll see that the dow futures are slightly higher. s&p futures up by close to two and a half. this comes after the market ended on its weakest levels of the day yesterday. yesterday was the worst day for the month of september for the dow. it was the worst day in two months for the nasdaq and it was the worst day in three months for the s&p 500. all of that kind of playing out overseas as well. in europe this morning, you are going to see some red arrows. a lot of concern about what's ha
the fallout of the crisis threatens the u.s. economy on your 401k. amy kellogg joins us from london with more. >> reporter: it affects your 401k was the markets of course are corelated and the markets in europe are down. also the s&p derives a significance portion of its earnings from european then american companies have operations overseas that make money in europe, therefore if the economy here is in a bad way that hurts americans. there was this big strike in greece today that got violent when some black-hooded anarchists kind of took advantage of the situation, throwing gasoline bombs at police. they used a general strike and march as a vehicle to just rage against authority. over 50,000 people came out. they are processing the further cuts that are coming their way . many in greece are generally desperate now having seen their salaries drop by more than 20% already since austerity became a way of life in greece. social safety networks are not able to save people. one person at the demonstration was quoted as saying, we are bleeding, we can't take it any more. the new conservative-led co
. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates say in the economy is so important is the friday morning after the wednesday night debate, we'll get the latest unemployment report. if governor romney could turn in a strong debate performance and another tepid jobs report, there's a chance for this race to change after debate number one. >> if you're the obama campaign, you're looking at all these numbers in our brand-new poll. what's most encouraging to you? >> reporter: in scrubbing through the demographics, the regional numbers, here's one thing they will like at the obama campaign. among white voters nationally, the president gets 41%. governor romney gets 56%. gove
>> pelley: tonight, signs of a new direction in the economy. we have new information on consumer confidence and real consumer confidence and real estate prices today. anthony mason on what all this means for jobs. jan crawford and nancy cordes with the president at the romney in ohio promoting free trade. jeff glor on the call that every football fan is talking about. >> it was awful. that's all i'm going to say about it. >> pelley: and these images helped change america. >> how could you not ask the question "what ever happened to that kid?" >> pelley: seth doane with the man who uncovered the stories behind the faces. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. six weeks before an election that may turn on the state of the economy, a new survey out today finds that americans are feeling better about things. consumer confidence is at its highest level in seven months, largely because more americans expect the jobs picture to improve. but confidence is still at what's considered a weak level. home values are increasing. a
the election. >> a president struggling with a slow economy, hoping to boost confidence in his leadership. >> i'm not fighting to create democratic and republican jobs, i'm fighting to create american jobs. >> a challenger fighting in the poll es trying to connect with average americans. after months of attacks on the campaign trial, it's time for these candidates to confront each other face to face. >> we will win this election, we will finish what we started! >> i will do better than this president has done for the american people! >> in colorado tonight, barack obama and mitt romney in their first presidential date. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward. >> what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing. >> two men with different vision on issues voters care about most. both of them. >> we certainly can't go far with a leader who writes off half a nation. >> he said he can't change washington from the inside. he can only change it from outside. well, we're going to give him that ch
, are we better at today than we were four years ago? are we? >> no, we are not better off with our economy, with our position in the world. we have seen a failure in leadership with this administration and with congress that is locked in gridlock. we need to send leaders to washington who will make tough decisions. i have shown you that i have been effective in nebraska in taking on tough policy issues. we have worked together, made those tough decisions. that needs to happen in washington and in washington as well. we need to reform washington. nebraskans know. we disagree on how we need to change it. we need to create jobs. you will hear me say that a lot because i believe that private businesses can create those opportunities, can create those jobs, not government. it is backing government away, away from all the rules and regulations. we need to reduce the corporate tax rate. 35% -- that is the highest among all our trading partners. we need to close loopholes so businesses can invest. >> in the nebraska, i would say decidedly yes. we have record farm income last year, median family in
the president's handling of the economy and what mitt romney would do were he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interesting to say he's not looking for a knockout punch, that's apparently what shannon o'brien who was hoping to win that gubernatorial race in massachusetts back in 2002, that's what he said she was so good at. we're talking to her later. romney has been pretty -- he's been known to get forceful, jim, when he lets his dander up, if you will. let's look at a clip here from a debate, a year ago, this is romney, rick perry, mostly romney. roll it. >> the way the rules work here is i get 60 seconds, and you get -- and you get 30 seconds to respond, right? anderson -- would you please wait? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes. >> are you going to let me finish with what i have to say. >> remember that moment? i guess my question, having seen that back and forth, remember, you know, romney kind of getting into rick perry's face, can you be that aggressive to
. it will cover six different segments. most of it, though, john, is going to be on the economy. there's going to be three segments to focus on the economy. one segment on foreign policy. one segment on the role of governing and one segment on the role of government in people's lives, john. so how this is going to be set up is that the candidates will be sitting at podiums. if you're looking at your tv screen, mitt romney on your left, president obama on your right. the first question tonight, john, goes to barack obama. >> well, will they have a chance to mix it up and rebutt each other in a free-flowing way. >> organizers hope to have a flee-flowing discussion. this is the kind discussion we like to see because it allows the two candidates to discuss it amongst themselves. if there are questions about each other's plans, they can directly ask each other that. we have not seen that in this campaign and we'll see it tonight. >> you said the economy will likely be the big subject in the debate tonight. we have new polling to give a sense of what voters are saying about this right now. >> it is,
night. >> pelley: tonight, a shortage of water is keeping not just crops but the entire economy from growing. the government cuts its economic growth estimates. anthony mason looks at the drought and other threats to jobs. israel's prime minister shows how close he believes iran is to a nuclear bomb. how close is it? david martin looks into that. mark phillips on a contwo verse net art world. she has that mystic smile, but is this a real mopa lisa? who says crime doesn't pay? jim axelrod on an auction of memorabilia from america's most notorious criminals. >> reporter: this was in clyde's waistband? captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. it turns out the economy is growing even more slowly than we thought. the government told us that u.s. growth in the second quarter was an anemic 1.7%, but today, the commerce department put out a new estimate showing us it was even less than that, just 1.3%. and this is what caught our attention in the report-- the government said half of the downward revision can be blamed on the droug
to the 800,000 visitors who come here every year as well as the local economy. >> it is beautiful. i'm glad it didn't fall down. >> reporter: barbara and jerry haynes snapped photos of a scaffolding free washington monument while they still could. >> we're used to earthquakes in california, but now we're here we know it's a little different. >> i have to say this registered 7.4 on my richter stale. >> reporter: now two men who each visited the washington monument as children now lead a team that will repair it. >> if you really look at the total cost of the project, it's almost entirely being spent in this region for both manpower and materials. >> it will mean that there is jobs for scaffolding companies, for stone companies and for other small businesses. >> reporter: the project is challenging. the heaviest damage to the monument is between 475 and 530 feet, considered the most difficult area to access. andrea mccarren, 9 news now. >> repairs have already been completed on the monument's elevator which was severely damaged by the earthquake last year. >>> iranian president mahmoud ahm
character and not about the economy. what do you think about, that, larry, a beauty pageant? >> i hope not and i don't think that is basically true. look, do people react to candidates as human beings? of course. but they also are fundamentally concerned about the country as whole. the basic issues of the campaign including the economy apply to people's evaluations of a debate. so, no, i really don't agree with that quote. i think it is entirely too superficial in more ways than one. jenna: you might be fun to have it more like a miss america pageant. >> i do not want to see candidates in bathing suits personally the that's just my preference. jenna: we all have our own preferences when it comes to learning more about the candidates, larry as you rightly point out. we'll wait until wednesday night to see what we talk about on thursday morning. always nice to have you, larry. >> thank you, jenna, could be a talent contest. not just bathing suits. we're learning more about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya as there are more calls for the united nations ambassador susan ric
't really amount to much. yesterday they had a sort of a veterans message and an economy message during events in virginia but they can't wait for just the debates. i think conservatives want to see not just big events in terms of big ideas but big events that grab the nation's attention. the romney campaign is frustrated because they say all the press asks them about is process but that's par for the course and true in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the debates. >> mark, you know why they focus on process, because there's not substance to -- you know, it's funny, in 1988 facing a more hostile press george h.w. bush never once whined about process. you know why? because james baker told the press what they were going to be following. and he told the candidate what he was going to be doing. and every week the candidate did it. the message was unbelievable. but
decisions away from a melted up in the american economy. if we get a decision on the grand bargain, the kind of ten year time frame we would manage the cut and spending and tax increases and in investments, we need do all three. we need to tax, cut, and invest in the source of our strength. i think that would have a huge effect. i think americans today feel in many ways like children of two divorced parents. i think it's a pal in the country in a lot of ways. it would be huge. if we got a grand bargain on energy how to exploit the boundary of -- i think the two together would have a huge impact. so the question is how close are we to that? and, you know, i have a saying about the middle east which applies to the american politics. all important politics happens the morning after the morning after. >> when is that? >> here i'm talking about the election. here i think the question really is i don't know how the election is going come out. i make no prediction. i ask myself if romney gets smashed, if he gets smashed, it would -- i happen to think the political problem in the country we have a c
the economy down the wrong path and here is what i will do to change it. he has to be that simple that declarative or else people will tune out quickly. and he has got to talk to his folks immediately. i think a lot of this depends on jim lehrer. i think how aggressive will he be in the questioning and follow ups? will he become a bipartisan advocate going after inconsistencies? >> jennifer: the format is a little more flexible. so there's an opportunity for mitt romney to not only get his licks in but in response to the president as well. and if he doesn't come out swinging, i think he has let an opportunity pass. >> cenk: and on the other hand john, he can overstep if he is too disrespectful to the president. >> john: of course. yeah i'm here for zinger watch 2012. and i found it curious when his campaign leaked that he was rehearsing his ad libs a few days ago. but it's worth pointing out governor romney has only debated democrats twice in his career. he did a great job in the primary season not getting too flustered. but when you are being pummelled by se

on about 75% of her views at least on how the economy and the financial industry should -- >> which is exactly why, of course, i like her. >> exactly, i like her a lot too. i want to be clear about that. >> the irony here is if you listen to her, draw her out, she is far to the left of where most voters are in that state. it's sort of interesting -- >> on what issue? i think she's to the left of howard dean. >> come on now. >> no, seriously, what is she? i think people have had it up to here with wall street and with consumer protection and those are her strong issues. so where is she -- >> she's fine on consumer protection, but she would break up the banks -- >> so would i. >> okay. fine. >> they're too big to fail. they're not capitalist institutions anymore. they're too big to fail. >> we can all go over to cnbc and have this debate. i'm not sure that the average massachusetts voter would want to rally restructure the financial system the extent she would. and i don't think she's going to get a lot of votes there. >> wasn't elizabeth warren fantastic? >> she was good. he had that
